If you have coolant,

If the thermostat is good,

your fans come on,

It could be a water pump failure, it has a plastic impeller that sometimes can shell out.

I have a pic of a bad water pump for a Taurus below.

If yours has done this, and a piece is missing, see if you can find it stuck in the water passage on the engine side.
